The David B. Feinsilver Award

The David B. Feinsilver Award: A scholarship to fund travel expenses to the ISPS Congress

David B. Feinsilver, M.D. was a long-time staff member at the Chestnut Lodge Hospital in Rockville, Maryland, U.S.A, where he chaired its Symposium Committee. A former president of ISPS, the chair of its 1994 meeting in Washington, and the founder of ISPS-US, he established a fund before he died after a long illness.  This fund grants a scholarship to fund travel expenses to each ISPS International congress, for the best research or clinical paper on the psychotherapeutic treatment of the severely disturbed.

Applications for the 2021 David B. Feinsilver Award will soon open!

If you are interested in applying for this grant you must indicate so during the ISPS Perugia 2021 abstract submission process. Applications will only be considered from people who cannot afford to attend the congress without financial support. The award will be given to the best research or clinical paper by a newcomer, who cannot otherwise afford to attend the congress.
